It all comes down to personal preference.
Personally, I enjoy characters that don't scream for attention. For instance, most people seem to love Tyrion from Game of Thrones, and I find him to be among the least compelling characters. To me, it seems the writer is so in love with him that he can never make his flaws as real as they should be - and as such I find the writing to be corrupt.
Bioware seems to focus on characters that draw attention to themselves almost immediately. They also seem to want to incorporate deep trauma into every single one of them. It would be fine if some of them were like that - but almost everyone in their games feel like that to me.
It's just not what I consider plausible characters.
